Views From My Collection

I 'm enclosing photos of two items of my collection. These are truly one-of-a-kind!

This cycle (the 'International-Har-ley-Yamaha-Kawasaki') was assembled from old parts of Briggs & Stratton, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Mobilift, Chevrolet, Allis-Chalmers, Continental, Yale, Clark, Lincoln Sweeper, Hys-ter, Pontiac, Chrysler, Towmoter, Cushman, Harley-Davidson, Sno-Shoe, Ford, I.H.C., etc! How many more brands, from how many more countries, could you put into it? It runs good at approximately eight miles per hour, and was built in 1991 by Vic Panetti, Jr. It turns a few heads when it is seen holding its own speed!

The other piece is shop built from a cream separator base and is also a one-of-a-kind. It runs really good, has a fly-ball steam engine, governor and brass fire extinguisher for the water tank. I purchased it at a public auction September 10, 1994. I think I am the fourth owner.

Both are really fun!
